new F4 2010...some pics in Bucharest

Took a few pics of my bro's F4 in front of the former Palace of Ceausescu, the sadly famous dictator of Romania.

Enjoy

It is neat to see the two styles lined up next to each other. You can really see the "evolution" they speak of.

Get busy livin, or get busy dyin
Motorcycle Art!
You live more in 5 minutes on a bike like this, going
flat out, than most people live in a lifetime.

sorry fellas, the new body style looks much better than the old

Nice bike!

The old style was beginning to look dated IMO

[QUOTE=khameron;352739]...that's my favourite pic (not taken by me).

Khameron - Good to see the new F4. I had the F4 1000R and ended up trading it in for a Ducati 1198S. I had long admired the MV styling and after a fairly aggressive test ride, was happy to purchase. Unfortunately I found that in the real world, unless pushing the bike, ie, like during a track day, the bike was not very user friendly. While no doubt a fast & powerful bike, the ergs left a bit to be desired (I'm 6') and more importantly, I found the power erratic at lower revs with a propencity to "jump" almost unexpectedly between 5000 to 6000 RPM. All that said, I've heard (according to my dealer and news articles) that the new F4 is much more user friendly with better ergs but at the same time doesn't sacrifice the power. Have you found that to be the case in real world ridning? Do you know anyone who has ridden both and got their thoughts? If what they say is true, I'll put a deposit on the new F4 today! Appreciate any insight. Thanks!

Given what you're saying here, i'd bet heavy money that you'd love the new F4. Basically, everything that one once could complain about is now gone...really.
Just try one and see for yourself.

My brother just bought the new F4 and he is coming from a Gixxar K5. He says the new F4 offers even more control, annihilates road bumps like no other Sports bike, handles like a 600cc and low rev control is OPTIMUM.


I haven't tried the new F4 extensively and i'm not an F4 specialist. However, if you want to know what the engine feels like etc...you can read my report about the B4 1090. Both bikes share a lot in common and what i say about the Brutale 1090 is also true for the F4 Y10... Here is you go http://www.mvagusta.net/forum/showthread.php?t=31508

Fantastics pics. I was in Bucharest last weekend - sadly without my F4. Romanians love bikes and I have seen more and more sports bikes in Romania over the last 5 years. Never seen an MV here though. To take one down the Transfaragasan highway (look it up if you don't know it), would be a dream! Trouble is that you have to travel over some very pot-holed roads to get there and an MV's not the best for that!
